According to this 1980s new wave single from Spandau Ballet, we made our love on wasteland, and Through The Barricades (that's what the chorus says anyhow). But the cover shows nothing of this at all. Now it does score some points because it has a picture of the band on it, but shows nothing of the aforementioned barricades. The remix is much more revealing, in many ways. As we can see the wasteland, the barricades and exactly why they would want to make their love there when there must have been more comfortable locations available.
Time for the remix of cover art that is just screaming for one. This 1981 single from the J Geils Band has on its cover a picture which is presumably meant to reflect what represented a centerfold in the 80s, though actually a quick Goggle[sic] search for 80s centerfolds reveals a lot more than the cover does! So the cover has been remixed to put a 2010s centerfold on the cover. And for the 2010s the centerfold we have selected is pretty tame, and pretty. Much like the 80s ones weren't as well!
Another single cover remix that has been initiated by a picture. This time it's 1980s new wave band ABC and their single Poison Arrow that gets the remix. We have replaced the picture of a sexy female archer holding some arrows with a similar picture of a sexy female archer but this time drawing her bow. And wouldn't you know it, for some reason, firing that poison arrow has made all her clothes fall off. Dangerous!
Taking clothes off seems to be a recurring theme here at AllBum.Art, for very good reasons. This time it's a remix of the cover version of We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off by Da Playaz Versus Clea which is doing the honors. Instead of the original band members with their clothes on, the remixed cover art shows a lot more girls with their clothes off. They didn't have to take them off, but it's nice that they did, wouldn't you agree?
Whip It by Devo is one of those songs that will probably be played forever more at discos and parties across the nation. Why? Because the idea of 'whipping it good' provides an image that most party-goers would see as being the next steps to a successful night after the party has ended. But unlike the original cover for the single, it isn't standing around a globe of the world that they have in mind, but more like the remixed version no doubt!
Aah... there's nothing so natural to behold as naked girls frolicking in the woods. So all that's needed is an excuse to use a picture of some. And this version of the classic song Light My Fire by British singer Will Young is just screaming for a remix. Gone is Mr Young's chinny grin, to be replaced by, well, naked girls frolicking in the woods. Oh, and poking a fire with a stick, just so that there is a connection with the title of the song. It would be a gratuitous use of pictures of naked girls otherwise!
We seem to be stuck in the 1980s this week with this remix of the cover of Joe Cocker's song You Can Leave Your Hat On. The song is synonymous with movies where people get naked (9.5 Weeks and The Full Monty for example) but the cover does not reflect this for even one hat-pickin' minute. The remixed cover does though as we see a busty babe who has left her hat on, though it is not clear whether she might take this off too at some point, which would spoil the cover, or then again maybe not.
As we have said many times before at AllBum.Art it is often a picture that spurs on a remix of the cover of a song, rather than the song or its original cover. That's the case with this obscure 1980s track by the eponymous Living In A Box. We found a picture of a cute babe who appeared to be stuck in a box and then looked for a song to remix. One thing is for certain, the remix is much better than the original, and it may be worth downloading the song just so that you can add the remixed single cover to your album art collection!
It's My Party, and I'll cry if I want to. That's what Lesley Gore told us in her 1963 version of this song. The cover though gives no indication of why Ms Goldstein would be crying at the party. The remixed cover gives us an insight into what is happening at the party and now much more becomes clearer. She is crying because the two naked babes at the bar have taken Johnnie away - easy to see how that could happen!
